I love burning candles, I find it relaxing breathing in the heady scents and watching the flickering lights. It helps me relax after a tiring day with my two… when you have dealt with one tantrum too many and you just need a little space to get it all back together with tranquility!!!
I was sent two candles from the extensive range at Potters Crouch, in the scents Mandarin and Secret Garden. I found it very difficult making my choice, as they all sound heavenly on the website. I certainly appreciated how nicely they were presented; the tops of the candle are very attractive. The Mandarin was studded with glistening crystals and the Secret Garden had pretty multicoloured crystals. It seems a shame to actually burn them; they smelt divine just as they were.
The scents were subtle but pleasant when burning. For £8.50 they make a lovely gift, they have a special offer on at the moment when you buy any 4 candles you just pay for 3 using the code SPRFFT. With an average 50hrs burn time; I think it is a complete bargain… I have paid a lot more for candles that burn out in half that time! But do not be deceived by the relatively low price, these look like quality products. The labels are original watercolours and the candles are handmade.
An extra special touch when the candles arrived they came with a note and three little fairtrade chocolates, because as much as you might be tempted (they do look rather delectable) you must not eat the candles… what a thoughtful gesture and goes to show how much Potters Crouch value their customers, going that extra mile.
Hubbie was pleased to see me setting up the candles, I think he had romantic illusions, his face fell when I informed him I was too busy reviewing ha! But I do feel like my mood has lifted after a hard day parenting, tomorrow is a new day and I will be ready to face it now.
Thank you Potters Crouch!
